    Fake news. No WHo or CDC guidelines make any mention of this. Be advised that Covid2019 is a complex Respiratory tract infection and this sort of misinformation and fake news is not helpful at all.

    Not correct; you can't "push it off" by drinking water or gargling.

    Hydration is good for you either way. I normally drink about 3 litres of water a day.

    Our citizens should start to take social distancing and social isolation seriously now!

    Reports are coming in that non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are being counterproductive for symptomatic treatment of covid-19 and rather are contributing to the problem since these normally decrease the inflammatory response of the body. So please avoid self medication by taking NSAIDs unless your health care provider says otherwise. List of NSAIDs are aspirin, diclofenac, ibuprofen, diflunisal, etodolac, indomethacin, ketoprofen, ketorolac, nabumetone, naproxen, oxaprozin, piroxicam, salsalate, sulindac, tolmetin. etc

    Rather just take paracetamol for fever and please consult your GP for exact medication. If you are on steroidal medication, your immunity is also compromised. Please be careful. Also, if you have any rheumatic disorder, cancer, lung disorders (asthma, COPD, Cystic fibrosis etc), heart problems, hypertension, diabetes or any chronic lung/heart problems then you are high risk patients. Please isolate yourself and don't get exposed to people and any potential risks and follow self measures recommendations by health authorities and ones mentioned in the article.


    @Dubious @waz @Slav Defence i can't edit the OP for some reason, can you please copy the above part in the OP, where medication part is mentioned and please exclude mentioned ibuprofen from the OP.

    I would urge anyone to consult their medical professional with regards to any contraindications as there is far too much disinformation on the internet.

    136 Cases!

    Of course, not to rely on self care/ online information only; rather indeed it's very important to consult local GP. The post is for general information, so that people avoid taking NSAIDs for time being by themselves if they have any symptoms; and ask their GP for exact medication.
